My husband and I just celebrated our four year anniversary. We went to our favorite restaurant in Willow Glen that serves classy cocktails and seasonal tapas. While we were sitting at the bar sipping on gin sodas and old fashions, we started to chat about work, upcoming trips, and of course our princess. It was so nice to have an uninterrupted conversation…and alcohol. And although we did miss our Rosie, it was nice to just be Ashley and Andy again. Being a parent is awesome, but thats not all we are.
It sounds silly and selfish, but I think date nights are super important to keep especially after having kids. I love getting dressed up and ready to go out, even if it’s to fall asleep 10 minutes into the movie. It is time for my husband and I to reconnect and appreciate each other.
